Default Activator Hulls

What is the difference between the 27 Activator Racing hull with the straight transom vs. the one with the molded swim platform?? Are there 2 different models?

27’s never had a molded swim platform. You may be confused between a 27 and a 30

If you look at the Rage 27 which says formerly Activator 27, there is a molded platform.... Unless Rage added the swim platform.

the old activator 27 straight bottom was popped off of a 27 Excalibur narrow 6'6" hull,,,, with top deck changes,,,then later had steps added
that mold was sold and sent overseas and still called activator 27
the rage is a newer design ,,,wider hull at 7'10" with the swim platform and called rage 28
2 different boat hulls

Thank you for the info. That's what I was wondering. Looks like the old Activator is in Sweden. Cool looking boats

The 27ft stepped hull is in Sweden now. Mange is his user name. Following the build of his boats, looks like they changed the step design to the 30ft activator bottom design.

Mange also did a great looking SVL style out of the 27 molds. I would love to own either one!
